It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. Joomla! brings together the template and your content to create web pages.

Logging in

To login to your site use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles and modify some settings.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "Submit Article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Template, site settings, and modules

The look and feel of your site is controlled by a template. You can change the site name, background colour, highlights colour and more by editing the template settings. Click the "Template Settings" in the user menu.

The boxes around the main content of the site are called modules. You can modify modules on the current page by moving your cursor to the module and clicking the edit link. Always be sure to save and close any module you edit.

You can change some site settings such as the site name and description by clicking on the "Site Settings" link.

More advanced options for templates, site settings, modules, and more are available in the site administrator.

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "User Menu" menu (visible once you login) or by adding /administrator to the end of your domain name. The same user name and password are used for both sites.

Learn more

There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the web site you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums.

Pro version will turn freeware on October 1st 2018.

Alle Joomla!-Komponenten werden auch im Administrationsbereich der eigenen Website verwendet. Über die nachfolgend aufgelisteten Komponenten hinaus gibt es viele Komponenten im Administrationsbereich, die nicht im Frontend angezeigt werden, aber an der Gestaltung der Website beteiligt sind.

Die wichtigsten Komponenten für die meisten Anwender sind:

  • Medien
  • Erweiterungen
  • Menüs
  • Konfiguration
  • Banner
  • Umleitung


Die Komponente „Medien“ erlaubt es, über die eigene Website Bilder hochzuladen und dem Inhalt der Website hinzuzufügen. Ergänzend steht auch ein „Flash Uploader“ zur Verfügung (muss aktiviert werden). Er erlaubt das Hochladen mehrerer Bilder auf einmal. Hilfe(engl.)


Die Erweiterungsverwaltung ermöglicht die Installation, Aktualisierung (Update), Deinstallation und Verwaltung aller Erweiterungen der eigenen Website. Er wurde für Joomla! 1.6 umfassend überarbeitet, obwohl die Kernfunktionen „Installation“ und „Deinstallation“ unverändert von Joomla! 1.5 übernommen wurden. Hilfe(engl.)


Mit der Menüverwaltung werden die Menüs, die auf der eigenen Website zu sehen sein werden, einrichten. Sie erlaubt aber auch Module und Templates bestimmten Menülinks zuzuordnen. Hilfe(engl.)


Im Administrationsbereich werden Einstellungen, wie das Freischalten von suchmaschinenfreundlichen Adressen, Eingabe der Metadaten für die eigene Website (beschreibender Text, der von Suchmaschinen oder Seiten-Indexregistern verwendet wird) und andere Konfigurationsmöglichkeiten vorgenommen. Für die meisten Einsteiger ist es am besten diese Konfiguration unverändert zu lassen, außer die Metadaten, die sollten nach Fertigstellung der Website so angepasst werden, dass z.B. eine Suchmaschine die Seite thematisch richtig einordnen kann. Hilfe(engl.)


Die Komponente „Banner“ bietet eine einfache Möglichkeit Bilder in einem Modul anzuzeigen. Falls es für Werbezwecke benutzt werden soll, kann für jedes Bild die Anzahl der Klicks und die Anzeigehäufigkeit nachvollzogen werden. Hilfe(engl.)


Die Komponente „Umleitung“ wird verwendet um defekte Links, die die Fehlermeldung „Page Not Found (404)“ - „Seite nicht gefunden (404)“ erzeugen, sinnvoll abzufangen. Ist die Komponente aktiviert, kann man selbst gestaltete Seiten zur Fehlermeldung verwenden oder auf externe Webseiten weiterleiten. Hilfe(engl.)
